In this pioneering work, one of the world's leading experts on Native American traditions offers a detailed survey of Native American practices and beliefs regarding health, medicine, and religion. In contrast to the sharp Euro-American division between medicine and religion, Native American medical beliefs and practices can only be assessed in their relation to their religious ideas.

From Library Journal:

Native North Americans live in a holistic society that integrates health, medicine, and religion with the environment. Hultkrantz (comparative religion, Univ. of Stockholm) gives a historical overview to regional practices of healing and its interaction with modern medicine. The author's attempt to span the large number of ethnic groups within North America creates a fast-paced overview, which is uneven due to the lack of available writings. Herbs, spiritual trances, societal support, and confession are some of the healing practices discussed, along with brief case studies. Though many Native American groups are becoming acculturated, these holistic healing rituals will survive because of renewed interest in New Age religions. For larger Native American collections.
